From the PublisherA New York Times Book Review Books for Vacation Reading & Notable Book of the Year
There's nothing more deeply moving than reading the words and thus hearing the voices of the actual survivors of hard times. McElvaine has captured these voices as no one else ever has.
The book is unique. Nowhere else can we read of despair as recorded by those who were feeling it hardest, unfiltered by memory.
First-rate explanatory essays by the editor.
The New Yorker
[This] book is easily the best thing of its sort ever done.
